Tummy Tuck and Lipo to Flanks

Had a tt and lipo to flanks as well as tightening...

Had a tt and lipo to flanks as well as tightening of breast augmentation I had 16 months ago. I wanted to be tighter in breasts although my ps didn't think it was necessary but I thought whilst I am under I may as well go as tight as possible :). Very happy with all results . Herewith some pics of tt. Bruising on thighs from lipo took 3 weeks to disappear . I am now 5 weeks post op

Bruising to thighs after lipo

Forgot to add this pic of bruising to thigh area after lipo on the flanks. It looks worse than what it is, I am still numb around there and have been informed that it can take upto 18 months to get feeling back

Fullness after eating

Do you feel the same way after eating?

I get the bloated feeling from ribs up and not tummy down. Sometimes so bloated that I can almost taste it. Lol Maybe not such a bad thing as it will stop me from over eating :)

4 months post op

Hi. Just had my 4 month po checkup and all looking good. Can't do any abs workout until I am 6 months post op. showed my ps the dog ear on the one side and he said I need to wait a few more months as my body is still changing and it could still flatten out. I Booked to see him 1st week Feb and if any adjustments need to be done then he will do it in his rooms with a local anaesethic . Herewith a few updated pics

Almost 5 months

Am I the only one battling . I hv tried changing my eating plans and just can't lose weight. Almost 5 months po and still numb on flanks area and below bb. Above bb is numb too but not as much as it was previously . My scar feels like its pulling at times and I just keep moisturusing it with bio oil. It does get itchy of which I was told was from the healing and again just keep moisturising that area, will post some pictures on the weekend. 1 more month to go and I can start ab exercises . Oh and when I sneeze its still tender on the tummy.

6 months

Here I am at 6 months po. Feeling great but now I want to start doing ab exercises and build strength in upper body. Need to drop a bit of weight then I will be happier but finding it so hard. Anyone else battling with weight after TT?

6 months po

8 month po

8 months po and have gained 2 kg in weight. At least it's not too much to lose but the Xmas / New Year holidays are always challenging with adding on a few kilo's. I have my check up in Feb and will see what my ps has to say . All in all I am doing great. I do swell at times at night which is very uncomfy. I still have the tightness feeling which I usually feel it more on the right side of abdomen . I haven't done any tummy exercises and hoping to start very soon. Still numb around bb area and scaring gets itchy especially on sides. I stopped using scaring treatments to see if that was the cause. Still not sure but prior to stopping I was using bio oil on bb, TT and breasts and only place that seems irritated is side /hip area. Will post more updates in about a months time and hopefully there will be more definition from my abs workout. Happy New Year and happy Healing

Great results! Incision line is perfect :) Most docs give the ok for abs a lot sooner than 6 months. I see your struggling with the weight. I had to get serious about mine again too. It's so easy for me to gain. I'm on My fitness pal. Awesome. You may want to try. I would also start by swapping out food - pop fir water, etc. and exercise will keep your body looking hot. Jillian Michaels videos are short and effective. Just 24 mins! Looking forward to hearing more about your progress :))

Thankyou for continuing to post your healing and encouraging all of us who are so early on our voyage to the flatside. Its interesting to hear you say that sneezing still hurts a bit at 5 months, looks like I will be on telfast for ages!
